Stash Report - Week 41 (with giveaway winners)

Thanks so much for all the comments last weekend on my stash report and 250th post giveaway. I look forward to another one in another 100 or so posts. Winners are listed below the stash report. 

This was a good week for the stash since I started cutting kits for my retreat. I was able to get two things kitted and ready to go and cut pieces for the items that will be holiday gifts for our daycare teachers this year (can you believe I am starting this in October instead of the week before? I am so proud of myself!). 

Fabric added this week: 0 yards
Fabric used this week: 3 1/4 yards

Fabric added year to date: 32 7/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 101 1/4 yards - yahoo, met my goal of using 100 yards!

Net fabric used: 68 3/8 yards

After all that cutting, I had to start sewing something! I just can't cut that much without sewing. So I pulled out a pattern that I bought last week that called for 30 3 1/2" squares. Remember the fabric I used to make a quilt for my friend Sara? I used it again to make her a clock, then still had a baggie with several pieces of it. I thought I could get the squares out of this fabric, but started to cut and realized I didn't really have much left -- I got only 9 squares instead! I decided to go ahead and the small quilt will now be a mini quilt! This is how it looks now, but I need to cut it up on the seam lines now and then sew it back together. Hopefully, I'll have a chance to do that this week and can show you the result next week. Here's what it looks like now. 

Ok, now onto the fun stuff. I had 17 comments on my post last week and most of you liked the fabric pack from Great American the best. I put all the names into the List Randomizer on random.org, and Mr. Random chose Heather and Gina - congrats ladies and I will have your winnings in the mail sometime soon (no promises how soon, but I will really try for this week).

Congrats to the winners!!

I have started cutting up some kits, too. I think that I am mostly going to work on piecing blocks at the retreat - no quilt assembly. So I am probably going to be loaded down with lots of projects! lol 1 more week!!!
